Nail Of The Day – Essence Vintage District 04 Get Arty & Stamping With Pueen 107

Hi there! Here’s another mani that I did a little while ago. This is also one that I consider to be a Nail Fail.

Alright… for this mani I painted my nails with Essence Vintage District 04 Get Arty (3 coats). In the bottle, this is one of the most amazing polishes I’ve ever seen. It’s a colour-shifting grey with plenty of yellow-to-orange-to-red shimmer. Like burning lava. Gorgeous!

However, once the polish is on your nails, it’s nothing but an uninspired khaki. A major disappointment!

Then I stamped – I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms and Pueen‘s 107 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping plate collection.

Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 221 Spring Street & Stamping With Pueen 96

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 221 Spring Street (2 coats). This polish is almost a one-coater, and it dries reasonably quickly. I don’t love the colour, but I often use this polish for plain and simple manis (no stamping, no glitter, etc.), and I’ve noticed the bottle is almost empty. I think I should be able to get another mani out of it. But let’s see…

This time I decided to stamp, and I opted for the seashell pattern from Pueen‘s 96 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection). The blue polish I stamped with is Essence Colour Boost 11 Instant Match.

I liked this mani. It wasn’t the most spectacular look, but I liked the coral and blue colour combo, and I’m glad I decided to stamp. What colour nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Christmas Nail Ideas / Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine, PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow & Essence Come To Town Lametta Topper

Hi there! I’ve got another Christmas Nail Ideas post for you today. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 046 Shout Out Loud (green), PS… Nail Polish Marshmallow (white), and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Time To Shine (gold). The glitter top coat I used on my middle fingers is Essence’s Come To Town Lametta Topper.

I like this mani because it was easy to do, and because it doesn’t look like any of those standard Christmas manis that everyone (and that includes me) does this time of year.

What do you think? Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven & Essence Glamaxy Far Far Away

Hi there! I’ve got a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel I ♥ Lasting Finish 702 Marshmallow Heaven (2 easy coats).

I love these milky purple shades. Of all the nail colours (and finishes) out there, “milky purple” is my favourite nail colour.

I also used one one of my favourite top coats, Essence Glamaxy Far Far Away (1 coat). This is a gorgeous rainbow flakie top coat. It doesn’t photograph well, but you can catch a glimpse of its incredible colour-shifting beauty in this photo.

I really liked this mani. It was a simple mani, it was super easy to do, but it was very eye-catching!

Do you like purple nails? Do you glitter flakie top coats? Feel free to get in touch via the comments. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Nail Of The Day – Superdrug B. Complete 154 Brit, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms, Essence 3D Glitter 10 Glorious Aquarius, Essie As Gold As It Gets, Essie Rock At The Top & Nail Decals

Hi there! Let me show you another mani I did not too long ago!

For this mani I painted my nails with B. Complete 154 Brit (2 coats, ring fingers, thumbs) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 419 Coat Of Arms (2 coats, middle fingers).

And I used white and blue floral decals on my pinkies and index fingers.

I thought this mani would look better with glitter, so I top-coated my nails with Essie As Gold As It Gets (pinkies, index fingers), Essie Rock At The Top (ring fingers, thumbs), and Essence 3D Glitter 10 Glorious Aquarius.

I really liked this blue, white and gold glittery floral look. Do you like blue manicures? Do you like nail decals and glitter? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Essence Out Of Space Stories 07 1000 Light Years Away & Stamping With MoYou London Sci-Fi 04, Sci-Fi 07 / A-Z Nail Art Challenge O – Out Of Space

Hi there! Today’s post is the last one for this week. This also means that Nail Week has now come to an end.

OK, for this mani I painted my nails with Revlon Top Speed 880 Black Star (1 coat) and Essence Out Of Space Stories 07 1000 Light Years Away (1 coat).

I started with the black Revlon base because I didn’t want to waste the sensationally beautiful Essence polish. 🙂

I decided it was time to break in a few new stamping plates – MoYou London Sci-Fi 04 and Sci-Fi 07.

The white polish I stamped with is Essence’s Stampy Polish which, unfortunately, has been discontinued.

I really liked this mani. I think I could have chosen a better (=smaller) image for the index finger, but I was still happy with the mani.

By the way, this mani is my interpretation of the Out Of Space challenge which is part of the A-Z Nail Art Challenge.

If you’d like to order from MoYou, you can get 10% off if you order through this link. Oh, in case you’re wondering… yes, I did purchase this stamping plate myself!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue & Stamping With Sugar Bubbles SB 031

Hi there! Today’s post is about a cute marine-themed mani. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 844 Out Of The Blue (2 coats).

The colour looks nice, but I really don’t like this polish at all. It stains badly. I should use it as a stamping polish only – this should be OK.

Anyway, since I already had a dark blue base, I decided to do (another) marine-themed mani. So I used Sugar Bubbles‘ cute SB 031 stamping plate.

And I double-stamped with Orly Snow Cone (light blue) and Essence Colour & Go 140 Go Bold (gold).

I really like this mani. It’s like… the sea, marine creatures and sunlight. Do you agree? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!
